SMSF Auditing

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs) offer a good strategy option for many individuals, families and small business owners to build tax-effective wealth and to protect assets over time. SMSFs are becoming popular for those who are ready to take control of their own super investments as they give you ultimate control and flexibility to manage your retirement benefits.

It must be noted though, that you will have increased responsibilities as a trustee of the fund. As an SMSF trustee, you need to keep up to date with all required regulations and keep up with the fast-paced financial markets.

All Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) are required to be audited. The methodology behind this is to ensure that the health and integrity of your super fund is maintained. All our registered SMSF auditors are fully qualified practising accountants and will assist you above and beyond your expectations. Essentially, maintaining the integrity of your fund and naturally adding value to the audit by ensuring that your fund is being utilised to its fullest capacity.

Most trustees of funds leave it up to their accountants to pick the auditor. As the trustee of a fund, you have the option of having your fund audited by someone you can trust. We are always happy to liaise with you and your accountant to ensure you receive value from the audit, not just an audit report and a bill.
